Why would a lottery winner get a lot more mail than usual?

    noise-gate,

    There's a real life news reporter that looks very much like that guy at the post office I MIB2! I thank the same robot or prop used in MIB2 was also a cab driver in total Recall or one of those movies.



    Carl Cameron

    I think you better watch it CT- that guy is a staunch Republican reporter and you may incur the wrath of some of the Diehard fans of that Party. As always, l stay away from politics but there is no harm in giving out advice when doom looms..

    People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

      Why do you want to know seeing that you constantly telling the forum that you a " born loser"- why get your hopes up?After all you have made it abundantly clear that there is " no light at the end of your tunnel?"

        PartyEasy money has a strong appeal. You will be asked to share your jackpot. When you say NO then expect angry responses.   Stuff that does not make it in  the daily news. Keep reading past lottery posts and you will become more enlightened. No Pity!

          When l read your post : l just had a flashback to that scene in MIB2 where that dude is inside the letter sorting machine with maybe 8 arms and a cigarette in his mouth..that's the guy l want sorting thru the crap coming to my mailbox..

          Hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on one of those neuralyzers!

          Yeah, that should be part of any lotto winner's survival kit

          LOL

              I would stop doing business with the post office.  Burn everything that comes to the house without looking at it. Set up a system where anyone I'm doing business with will not send letters thru the USPS. I wouldn't have a telephone land line either and get a number number every 6 months...

                    If I won the Lotto, I would take the annuality option and have the check wired to my investment account. Second, I would ask not to allow my picture to be taken; nor would I appear at their news conference. This way, no one would know what you look like. 

                    Lastly, I would make sure that my financial house is in order before I go to collect my jackpot winnings. 

                    The important thing to do is before you win, imagine having more than $100 Million and how would you go about allocating it without going broke and losing friends at the same time. The goal with having that kind of money is to invest it in a good mix of Stocks and Bonds in the right companies. The WRONG stocks will destroy your wealth. Keep everything modest and do not tell anyone that you won the Lottery. If they ask, tell them that you were not the winner. As long as you do not have your picture taken or give a press conference, you'll be ok because no one can come after you if they do not know what you've got.
